Assessment of Design Provisions for Open I-Section under Combined Flexure and Torsion
Zhang, Jing (2012-07-02)
In civil structures, the members often encounter a combined loading of flexure and torsion, which has a strong influence on the members’ behavior and capacity, especially for those beam sections with relatively weak torsional ...
Combined Flexural and Cable-like Behavior of Ductile Steel Beams
Alp, Yunus (2009-08-28)
In addressing the propensity of steel building structures to experience progressive collapse due to extreme loading conditions (e.g., blast), current design guidelines propose the use of a threat-independent approach that ...
Comparative Load Rating Study Under LRFR and LFR Methodologies for Alabama Highway Bridges
Murdock, Michael (2009-05-21)
Currently, the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) uses the load factor rating (LFR) methodology of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Manual for Condition Evaluation ...
Design & Construction Planning of Rapid Bridge Deck Replacement Systems for I-59 Bridges at Collinsville, AL
Harvey, Bryan (2011-12-13)
Many bridges in the Birmingham area have deteriorated decks that need to be rehabilitated or replaced. Several of these are major interstate bridges that carry large volumes of traffic. Rehabilitation or replacement of the ...
Development of a Single-Degree-of-Freedom Algorithm for the Analysis of Buried Composite Pipes Subjected to Internal Dynamic Pressure
Sadler, Dustin (2011-12-05)
The overall objective of this research project was to develop a practical engineering methodology for the analysis of underground composite pipes subjected to internal dynamic loading. The need for this analytical methodology ...
Experimental Evaluation of the Static Strength and Ductility of Large Diameter Shear Studs in Composite Bridge Construction
Veclotch, Jason (2013-04-19)
A number of bridges in the United States consist of steel girders with concrete decks attached via shear studs which will require replacement in the future. With a growing interest in rapid deck replacement for bridges ...
Factors Influencing Catenary Behavior in Ductile Steel-Framed Structures
Kantrales, George (2012-07-02)
Historical precedent has established progressive collapse as a phenomenon characterized by the potential for extreme structural damage and loss of life. In an attempt to mitigate such behavior in conventional structures, ...
Fatigue Testing and Design of Large Diameter Shear Studs Used in Highway Bridges
Mundie, Daniel (2011-07-19)
Headed studs are commonly used to transfer shear forces along the interface of the steel beam and concrete deck in composite highway bridge girders. Typical stud diameters used in composite bridge design are less than 1". ...
Full-Scale Implementation and Testing of Non-Prestressed Full-Depth Precast Bridge Deck Panels with Continuous Shear Pockets
Mante, David M. (2012-08-16)
The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) currently has over three miles of major interstate bridges near downtown Birmingham involving approximately 600,000 square feet of deck area with significant levels of ...
Resistance of Multi-Wythe Insulated Masonry Walls Subjected to Impulse Loads
Browning, Robert (2008-12-15)
The overall objective of this project was to define the dynamic flexural resistance of multi-wythe insulated masonry walls with specific emphasis placed on determining the potential application of foam insulation as a ...
